Dr. Jean-Paul Bahary, CHUM radio-oncologist and research member of the Institut, had the idea to create an event that brought together colleagues and friends for a masquerade.
Last October, in 2015, the 1st edition of the Soirée Masquée was a complete success: the event sold out and over $45,000 net was raised for the Institut.
Instead of last year’s theme of a Bal, this year will have a 1920’s theme, set to the style of the Roaring Twenties.
All profits raised during the La Soirée Masquée will serve to finance translational research bridging fundamental and clinical science. This project, funded by the Institut, is carried out at the Centre de recherché du CHUM in collaboration with the Ste-Justine Hospital. The project is based on a cohort of paediatric patients who received cancer treatments at a young age and were cured, and are now followed at the CHUM.
